Fraser Sherman replied to Commander Benson's discussion From the Archives: Deck Log Entry # 90 Death in the Silver Age---Mark Merlin, R. I. P.
"I always wanted Scooby-Doo Teamup to use Dr. Thirteen. Now I'm expanding it to want Mark Merlin in the story as well (and yes, I know it's been canceled). Was the tuxedo meant to represent Mark's role as a magician? I read a couple of…"

""The essential problem, as I see it, was that there is suspense in the notion of an ordinary man pitted against an unearthly powered menace, but magic versus magic is actually quite dull. " While I've heard this argument before, I…"

Fraser Sherman replied to John Dunbar's discussion Marvel and DC Golden, Silver, and Bronze Age collections
"Start of the Bronze Age generates much more debate, I think, than the start of the SIlver Age (though that generates some). Movie books on film noir do the same thing — there's general agreement classic noir starts with 1940's…"

"I was just reading the first of the Bizarro backup stories in adventure and I realized Superboy arrives in the present and visits Htrae without turning into a phantom (ditto Krypto). Although I suppose the fact he's light years away could be…"

"I'd be up for it. I just read Fadeaway Doom — I'm working through it at about one story every week or two as part of a Silver Age reread — but I can always go back and reread something if I need to refresh my memory."

"I enjoyed a lot of the stories I saw in the 100 Page Super-spectaculars but with so many more available to me, my respect has increased. There's just so much good stuff."

Fraser Sherman replied to John Dunbar's discussion Marvel and DC Golden, Silver, and Bronze Age collections
"I have most of them in Bronze Age reprints but they look soooo damn good in the Omnibus. Very much looking forward to ordering Batman Omnibus #8 as soon as I have some spare change. My respect for Golden Age Batman has gone way up since I started…"

Fraser Sherman replied to Commander Benson's discussion Deck Log Entry # 228 The Wienie-isation of Hal Jordan
"I see your point about the fisticuffs. You're probably right about the smoking. I was amused when Agents of SHIELD had a 1930s set episode this season and even FDR wasn't smoking his iconic holder. It's just as bizarro as …"

"Commander, your comment about DC not getting why Marvel was a hit reminds me of William Messner Loebs making the same complaint about DC's reaction to image. In The Hawkman Companion he said DC concluded that mindless action and bad art were…"

"Regarding the fisticuffs, GL was actually punching people out before the Batman show took off: something would deactivate or neutralize his power ring so he'd have to resort to fisticuffs. Gil Kane's said he wanted to draw more dynamic…"

"Yes, all he's done is save Earth a few hundred times. Putting it in that context could have been interesting: Hal's kept the world from disaster, but now he wonders if that's enough? Is there a way he can make things better? But they…"

Welcome to the Comics Round Table,

Glad you are still here.I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( mrs.katekwame5@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.


Kate Kwame.
